Dont let good or bad reviews cloud your judgement. As with any job there are processes. With this particular job you learn these processes. There are pros and cons with any job. Tip avoid drama and do the best you can, at the end of the day it is a job.
The warehouse can be a dangerous place and repetitive motion can be a strain on the body and morals. And yes there is a headset that tells you what to do. For every system there are checks and balances. And you as a worker can naviagate these duties whilst mitigating the damage of careless injuries by following protocols provided. People working together can accomplish much.
The pay is excellent, the rates (for the most part) are achievable. You dont get hounded for this unless you are continually unproductive. Anyone says that as a blanket statement are not being honest.

Delivery Driver/Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) – Manchester Central – 15 January 2018
I am friendly and highly motivated individual who enjoys helping others, with 3 years in a variety of customer support departments, I have gained the skills needed to deal with customers and any problems that they may have.
Pay is good!! Working hours are good don’t get asked to stay over very often. Benefits are good but you don’t get a uniform at all, working in a chill you would expect at least a coat. Pick rates are in excess of 2000 cases a day no matter how heavy the stock is. Management very childish and if your face don’t fit you won’t get on in this place. My face didn’t fit because I spoke up about how unfair the managers were, I was here 6 months and no second skill was offered to me and I know people who had been there 4 months were being trained on second skills. Fellow colleagues were ok some really friendly and helpful. No canteen only vending machines so no hot food offered in a chilled warehouse?? Can’t wait to get out of the place worst place I have ever worked.
Management, the place needs more down to earth people to run it
The work isn't too difficult or straining, get your head down and you'll hit your targets with ease. The Canteen isn't bad and is reasonably priced, and the hourly wage is very good in comparison to other workplaces. I enjoyed working there.
Warehouse Assistant (Former Employee) – Bolton – 28 December 2017
Good place to work very organised. Taught important life lessons. Friendly helpful staff. Not much room for manoeuvre in the lager of employment but not a bad place to start and was an enjoyable experience overall. Especially considering it was only work experience and not a full time job in any respect.
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) – Belvedere, Greater London – 18 December 2017
Unappreciated. I feel like a number. Even when you do good they always find something wrong. Recently had a family emergency and I went into work to ask for some time off which was declined. They want you to go above and beyond but it’s hard to do so, when they can’t even assist you at a difficult time.
Expected to go above and beyond at all times but they won’t do the same for you
